Artist/Band: Mark Knopfler
Lyrics for Song: Donkey Town
Lyrics for Album: Other Songs - Mark Knopfler



I've been around in Donkey Town

Too long baby too long

Checking out of Donkey Town

So long, so long, so long



Her pretty eyes are pretty still

But Jim's got a kind of a squint Yeah

I dug up my last check from out of the mine

Now I feel like I've done my stint

Jim got an army pension

When he walked from the military court

No body ever mentioned

The medical report



She does little things for me

She likes to get the both of us high. Yeah

She says I'm a tender-hearted man

Prince charming,yeah, sure, I'm the guy

He likes the wrecker's dogs on chains

And the smoke from the company fires

Diesel oil in the trucks and cranes

And the smell of burning tires



But I've been around in Donkey Town

Too long, baby ,too long

Checking out of Donkey Town

So long, so long, so long



There's a purple heart in a silver tin

And a grey .45 in a drawer

Most of the time you can drink with him

But some other time he's just sore

On days when she says she can't think straight

Or she feels like she's getting the jumps

She'll go shoot off her .38

At cans on a Donkey Town dump



It was Friday late and she crossed those legs

She told me flat out she would. Yeah

If I could pull up my trailer pegs

We could get away together for good

I sure wish her the best of luck

She's going to need it thinking of Jim

I don't like to leave her stuck

But she's near as bad as him



But I've been around in Donkey Town

Too long baby too long

Checking out of Donkey Town

So long, so long, so long

Checking out of Donkey Town

So long, so long, so long
